That putting my MP3 player on my amp could mess with the electronics of it? I did this, and both my gain channels lost a detectable amount of gain. The regualar gain channel is clean now, and my extra gain sounds like the regular one usually does. I've never seen such a pu55y ass **ing amp in my life. I have to practically BABYSIT this thing!

Well, you charge it off off the computer so it obviously has an internal battery but still, I too wouldn't think that'd do anything. Idk. Hopefully it's like putting a magnet on a TV and will go back to normal.

that really sucks, I used to put my iPod(when it worked) on my amp and run it through it both through the guitar input and through the back of it via audio plugins(red and white ones), haven't had a problem ever with it.

so unless your mp3 player has the potential of a small electro magnet capable of knocking out circuits at will, I doubt the mp3 player is the sole reason.

I have blown up 3 fender frontman 15R amps in my beginning days, they were not good, and I would blow up the lead channel pretty quickly. Seriously It took only 4 months for my lead to blow up on the first, and then the other two it took really only 2 weeks a pop.

Maybe there is something wrong inside the amp itself.
Amp techs are a must for this, or if you know someone who's electronically smart and knows how to read diagrams pull it off the internet from the makers site and let them read it and take a look.

no way in this lifetime that teeny tiny cell in the player is going to affect anything. but if you MUST, go ahead, unplugg the amp for 2 minutes then plug it back in and try it. but honest Ozzy ain't no way that player affected your amp!!!!! I'll bet BBT's life on it!

I don't know how it already could blow. Sad thing is, this is a Frontman 212R. So it's starting to seem to me these amps in general are pretty porrly constructed. But what can I say, it was only $300 bucks for a 100 watt so I guess I got what I paid for.

send an email to the company tech support. put what you said in the earlier post......"both my gain channels lost a detectable amount of gain. The regualar gain channel is clean now, and my extra gain sounds like the regular one usually does." and anything else you can think of. see if they respond
maybe there is a known issue.

just remember how you freaked out when you got it and it turned out to be the settings. (that was a feedback prob). so chill and take a second look at all your settings (on the guitar too)!

OH! before I forget, my guitar has this problem in its electronics(that I hope to get taken care of soon) where the connections made with the cable in the input don't contact very well, and that gives a ver very low signal, like gain on 10 sounds like a slightly dirtied clean and it doesn't respond very well with the playing.

so I give it a slight bump on the back where the electronics are at, you may want to check out the electronics in your guitar as well.

lol. Yeah it's either that or a bad cable. In fact, my Fender cables are the only things that HAVEN'T given me crap lately.

Don't put your ipod above the amp, cause its like a magnet and it'll mess up you ipod disks.

Couldn't really read all of the replies but anyway, here's my answer to it:
I used to connect my phone to my amp and play along with the music but it never effected the amp, not that I noticed, at least. It's like all the same, but you should really contact someone that has some excperience with this kind of things, cause... well, they're excperienced. And YES, try switching the cables. I didn't play guitar for two weeks or so once, thinking my amp was broken (and my father thought I wasn't getting any sound because I hadn't removed the thin nylon cover over the pick ups, LOL) and all I had to was but a new cable.
Hope that helps! XD!
